Item Description...
Overview
A promising national swimmer, Maureen McKenna, has to stop the sport she loves on medical grounds. Distraught, she kicks back at the world that has betrayed her. A combination of commercial acumen and problem drinking saw this business high flier soar and crash - repeatedly. It couldn't continue, Maureen became an alcoholic, started a 12 year abusive relationship and the world had won again. Without hope, aged 33, she joined Alcoholics Anonymous and met a young man who told her about a surer kind of hope founded on faith but she still considered her life worthless. She tried to throw herself in front of traffic on a busy road and felt a hand restraining - but there was no one there. She phoned the young man from AA and became a Christian that day. Maureen and Hugh (for that was his name) married and worked with street people in Glasgow. Their charity, 'Open Door Trust Glasgow' opened in 1998. Maureen died of cancer in 2002, after being made 'Scotswoman of the Year'. The first version of this book was voted 'Best Christian book' by a panel of judges from across the UK.

Publishers Description
A promising national swimmer, Maureen McKenna, has to stop the sport she loves on medical grounds. Distraught, she kicks back at the world that has betrayed her. If the world had let her down then she was determined to beat it into submission and win out on her own terms. A combination of commercial acumen and problem drinking saw this business high flier soar and crash - repeatedly. The cycle couldn't continue and Maureen became an alcoholic and involved in an abusive relationship that lasted 12 years. The world had won, again. Without hope, aged 33, she joined Alcoholics Anonymous as a last resort and met a young man who told her about a surer kind of hope, one founded on faith. She listened but was still determined to do away with what she considered was her worthless life. Just as she was about to throw herself in front of traffic on a busy road, she felt a hand on her shoulder, physically restraining her from stepping off of the curb. When she looked around, there was no one there. She phoned the young man she had recently met and became a Christian that day. Maureen and Hugh (for that was the young man's name) later married and worked full time with homeless people, prostitutes and addicts in the streets of Glasgow. After 12 years they decided that the people that they met needed more than food and clothes, they needed a saviour to break the cycle of deprivation. In 1998 they set up Open Door Trust Glasgow. Read about this amazing work in the urban underclass, a work that will challenge your pre-conceptions and move your heart with compassion. Share Maureen and Hugh's vision of service to making a change in the lives of those whom the world passes by.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A very humbling read  Mar 19, 2002
This is the autobiography of a truly remarkable woman - though I get the feeling that the author herself would disagree with that comment. This is the story of a woman who who suffered so many "knockbacks" in life, ill health, involved in an abusive relationship etc, that she herself became an alcoholic.

When Maureen decided to pull herself together, she joined AA and there met another recovering alcoholic (Hugh), through whom she discovered the Christian faith. For many years now this couple have devoted their lives to helping those who are less fortunate than most, those who society tend to shun ie drug addicts, prostitutes etc.

This woman's story is well reading as it takes you through her own battle and the onto helping others with theirs.

I personally cannot rate it highly enough!
